Private Investigators Bratislava, Slovakia - Wilsons Detectives
PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS BRATISLAVA, SLOVAKIA – PRIVATE – COMMERCIAL INVESTIGATIONS If you were to rank the richest regions in the EU, a few names would quickly, almost instinctively, come to mind: London and Paris might surely come first, followed by Scandinavian cities and other big European capitals. Austria, The Netherlands or Belgium would also be likely to reach the top 10 - Well, you’d only be half wrong
BRATISLAVA, SLOVAKIA DETECTIVE AGENCY WILSON’S WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1951 AND NOW WITH MORE THAN 250 DETECTIVES AGENCY BRANCHES AROUND THE GLOBE INCLUDING AMSTERDAM - BERLIN - BUDAPEST - BRUSSELS - LONDON - MADRID - PARIS - PRAGUE – DETECTIVE AGENCIES
Recently released Eurostat data ranks the richest and poorest EU regions in terms of purchasing power per capita – regional GDP compared to local market prices. Some results could easily have been predicted. Others, not so much.
Bratislava and Prague as the 6th and 7th richest EU regions and two of the best performing branches in the private investigators group Wilson’s Detectives
Bratislava and Prague both make the top 10 list of the EU’s richest regions. And it’s not the first time either: both Central European capitals have been among the most attractive cities in terms of purchasing power for several years in a row. According to this study based on 2016 data, Bratislava (184% of EU average) and Prague (182%) are the 6th and 7th richest EU regions
So, who comes before? Well, as could be expected, London is the uncontested winner. Inner West London’s purchasing power per capita represents 611% of the EU’s average level – if Brexit could have one positive outcome, it’s the exclusion of London from this study and the automatic flattening of regional wealth disparities. Then comes Luxembourg (257%), Southern and Eastern Ireland (217%), Brussels and Hamburg (both at 200%). Slovakia and Czech Republic’s capital cities follow, outranking regions such as Ile-de-France (wider Paris area) or Stockholm
No wonder Prague and Bratislava have both become, over the last decade, an attractive destination for students, businessmen, and expats of all sorts and horizons
Prague, Bratislava, Warsaw, Budapest… and the rest?
This doesn’t, however, reflect the situation nation-wide. Both the Czech Republic (88%) and Slovakia (77%) remain well below EU average. The wealth gap with the rest of the country is impressive and upsetting: if the average annual GDP per capita in Prague reaches 35.000 euros, it stands at around 17.000 euros in the country as a whole. Unsurprisingly, Prague and Bratislava both account for over one-fourth of national GDP
A similar situation, although slightly alleviated, can be observed in other Central European countries. If the Budapest and Warsaw regions’ relative wealth represent 102% and 109% of EU average, Hungarians and Poles’ purchasing power remains well below (around 67%, or 19.800 euros per capita, compared to 29.200 euros at the European level)
